Applications and Interviews 


The Des Peres Hospital Residency program accepts applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) of the Association of American Medical Colleges.  Our deadline for receipt of all materials is October 27, 2012 unless a rotation is scheduled after that date.   Application materials should include:

  • ERAS common application with personal statement
  • Dean’s letter
  • Medical School transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • COMLEX scores for all parts taken prior to interview

Passage of COMLEX Part II is required prior to start of program.





Interviews are held on the first or second Saturday of November and are by invitation only. 

All ERAS applications will be reviewed with candidates for interview selected by the Program Director.  An informal reception will be held at Des Peres Hospital the Friday evening before the interviews.  A tour of Des Peres Hospital will be offered at that time for those who are unfamiliar with the Hospital.  

Intern Interview Day is Saturday, November 3, 2012.  Completed applications must be submitted through ERAS by October 27, 2012.

Interviews will be held on Saturday from 7a until all are completed.  For those unable to make it on the selected Saturday date, personal interview may be arranged at a date/time mutually convenient to the candidate and the faculty.
